An frequent shift between sun and storm is the mosaic of springtime in the sky above Wyoming’s prairies.
On Sunday, Laramie-based photographer Brian Harrington and his wife were driving through the wind-turbine studded landscape north of Medicine Bow. Harrington saw and seized a chance to freeze that shifting mosaic for eternity.
“Dani [Harrington] and I were on our way back to Laramie from a fishing trip in Casper,” Harrington wrote. “It was sunny and warm in Casper and that storm cloud behind the windmills was like a wall moving toward us across the prairie. The light was filtering through the clouds in slivers and when it hit the windmills I pulled over quickly to grab this photo. The ‘moment’ lasted only a few minutes.”
